Taskmaster

Last night was the best of the three so far.

Don’t mind Ian so much, it’s Paul that I don’t get. Something about him creeps me out.

Loved Lou hitting Alex with a water balloon for absolutely no reason

do you reckon taskmaster will ever get a Netflix budget and go very very BIG?

Can’t understand why it would need a bigger budget?

Which desert in Greater London are we talking about exactly?

I’ve not seen it, but I presume American taskmaster got a big budget. That didn’t get renewed for a second season.

Didn’t seem too much bigger than the UK one honestly

funny reading this as Alex was a friend of my teenage years/twenties - shared a tent at Reading festival… played garden cricket and football with him, went to each others weddings etc…I haven’t seen him for about 8 years though…always good to see him on screen or in the papers or an underground advertisement though…

The big reveal is that he is as lovely in person as his persona portrays and his parents are really great

Great to hear this. I’ve spoken to him a few times after comedy shows. He even wrote “thank you for being nice” in my copy of Wordwatching when I asked him to sign it.

At least he seemed genuinely mortified watching it back. Still better than Russell Howard.

Worst contestant they’ve ever had (and they’ve had Noel Fielding)

Enjoyed that episode, especially the football task. Paul in the telephone box was cracking

It’s alright. Very smugly self-satisfied at times.
